DNR Announces CWD Hunt

In an effort to contain Chronic Wasting Disease in the area, the DNR has announced a special deer hunt for two weekends in December.
Residents and non-residents can hunt Dec. 21-Dec. 23. and Dec. 28- Dec. 30. The hunting zone in 2018 was expanded due to CWD positive deer being outside of the containment zone.
The extra hunt helps to prevent the spread of the disease because CWD is spread through direct contact. A smaller deer population will limit the spread of the disease.
